Absolutely! The Republican party needs to distance themselves from the alt-right. Trump has hired the alt-right into his administration so I can trust him, but the party itself at least should show some patrioc resolve.
Quotes by Donald J. Trump on violent rhetoric:"I'll beat the crap out of you.""Part of the problem ... is nobody wants to hurt each other anymore.""The audience hit back. That's what we need a little bit more of.""In the good old days this doesn't happen because they used to treat them very, very rough.""Try not to hurt him. If you do, I'll defend you in court, don't worry about it.""I'd like to punch him in the face.""Knock the crap out of them.""Maybe he should have been roughed up.""I don’t know if I’ll do the fighting myself or if other people will."“Hillary wants to abolish — essentially abolish the Second Amendment. By the way, if she gets to pick, if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know.”
Why would he enrage them, they are the majority of people who voted for him and who still support his train wreck of a government. That's the great America he promise them
"U.S is greatest when we join together & oppose those seeking to divide us. #Charlottesville," -Mike Pence
Who does he mean by 'Us'? It was an American that drove a car into other Americans.
He won't speak against White supremacists or Putin. Both are a threat to America.
Welcome to Trump's America where Nazi folks commit terrorist styled attacks against fellow Americans.
How much more GOP before you say enough? This is not what our country is about. Not hatred. When will you stand up to 45 and the hatred?
Trump is the fella that kept the birther movement galvanized for eight years. His disrespect and disdain for our first black president wasn't happenstance but rather from the playbook and mind of a white nationalist.
Why couldn't the pussy grabber speak more forcefully against the White terrorists? They do in fact what his son-in-law deported and his daughter imprisoned as race traitor.
This is our national History being forged in real-time, and to use words lacking clarity now would be to risk allowing the ugliness off the hook or to create ambiguity that excuses it. And yes, there are all sorts of other ways that racism and privilege live and thrive; ways that are far less obvious or brazen than tiki-torch wielding marches. There are systemic illnesses and structural defects and national blind spots that we need to speak to and keeping pushing back against, and we will. But in moments that are this clear, when the malignancy is so fully on display—we’d better have the guts to say it.
Bottom line: Trump cares that white supremacists are part of his voting bloc more than he cares about what happened in Charlottesville today. I don't know how one could see it any differently.
